Restorative Care

The goal of Restorative care is to maximizing Resident independence and meet mobility needs. Restorative Care works closely with our vendors to provide the Residents with necessary assistive devices to help Residents maintain their independence. Restorative Care also maintains an inventory of Resident owned Wheelchairs and Walkers to ensure they are in safe working order.

Assistive Devices Program

The Restorative Care Coordinator also provides the Residents with support during the government assisted funding process (ADP) to obtain mobility and seating equipment.

The appropriate wheelchair and walker will maximize Resident safety, independence and comfort. Residents are encouraged to apply to the Assistive Devices program which provides government assistance for up to 75% of the cost of the mobility devices by a certified ADP Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist.

Residents are assessed by a physiotherapist or occupational therapist, in the Home, and an application to the program is made. Residents who require assistive mobility equipment will then own their equipment and it will be suited to meet the individual Resident’s needs. Costs of equipment required, such as walkers or wheelchairs and possible government funding assistance can be discussed with the Director of Program Support and Volunteer Services and/or the Restorative Care Co-ordinators.
